  • 2 tblsp brown sugar
  • 50 g butter
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 1 glass crème de cassis
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 2 tblsp caster sugar

  1. Put a pot of water on, bring to boil and turn down to simmer.
  2. Get a bowl that will fit over top of pot and add yolks, caster sugar and wine.
  3. Whisk until it's light, pale, fluffy and the mix holds a figure of eight. (Be careful not to scramble).

  5. Then add crème de cassis and vanilla pod and whisk all together.
  6. Add blackberries and cook until liquid just comes to boil.
  7. Add blackberries in a dish. Spoon over Sabayon and then gratinate under grill until golden brown.
